number 27, a department first perspective, not the city wide perspective, intended in the administrative code has resulted in lack of coordination and communication between the departments and for this i would state agreed. the fact that these projects have taken so long to take forward is the attitude that perminates city agencies. next i also agree and it's difficult to move departments in the same direction. 29, department heads and cio's don't grant the authority for them in the administrative code as governing their own plans and actions. for this i agree. finding 30. neither coit or the cio believe in their ability to enforce these policies and initiatives and i patiently agree with that statement. while coit likes to behave they have the authority to enforce policies and initiatives because it's a diffused body there is no one to hold them accountable. the last finding there is no secure or immediate consequences for departments failing to implement in city wide initiatives and meet time lines for compleetion. i agree. there are no consequences for them to meet time lines

. so the question is, is this a good deal for the city. the first question that comes up, to be honest, goes to the last point -- last couple of points that mr. rose made. this company bought this for $21 million. over the course of a 20-year lease we will pay about $70 million in rent. even if we hadn't just spnt the $21 million, if we had financed that purchase, you are talking about paying $34 million to actually own the property and have that asset. instead, we are talking about spending $70 million in rent. after 20 years we're not going to own that property. so what happened here in terms of, you know, managing the writer's money. you and i have had the conversation, the challenges the mta has had to en counter the last few years. the county transportation gave the mta * $7 million because there was a shortfall in the budget so that, you know, we could lessen the impact of the service cuts that had to be made by the mta. and yet we have a situation that we could have bought this property for $21 million. maybe as high as $34. why didn't that happen? >> okay. thank you, supervisor
